Mathews v. Eldridge (1976) – cost benefit analysis
-no evidentiary hearing before termination of disability benefits
-private interest
-how measured? just money?
-risk of error
-government’s interest (public interest and admin burden)
-JM – three problems with Mathews
-no attention paid to process values – sole purpose of procedure is enhancing accuracy
-lack of participation causes alienation and loss of dignity
-predicated on fact that social value is impossible to measure
-balancing analysis is insufficient to protect due process rights
